KARBOWSKI ON JONES:"Maria missed the 2012 season with injury, but made steady progress throughout the spring with her hard work. When on the field Maria plays with a competitive edge and fiery attitude. She has the ability to be a great link in the offensive third to create and distribute in a variety of ways. With her return to full health she will make important contributions to the team."
